Cycling With Us

Our rides are easy-paced, casual cycling that rolls at the pace of the group. No one is ever dropped and there is plenty of time for socializing before, during and after the ride. Our goal is to help move people beyond the bike path and gain the confidence to ride in less protect places,

If you are interested in getting involved or leading rides in your area, just send an email to Bruce Lederer and we’ll see that it happens.and
